Established in 1993, Trident has proposed upgradation of paper machines to increase production of paper from 1,35,000 TPA to 2,10,000 TPA along with an increase in co-generation plant from 45.9 MW to 90.9 MW. The company has received environment clearance for expansion of its paper mill with improved technology and energy efficiency. Set-up in Punjab’s Barnala district, the project entails a cost of around Rs. 440 crore.
This paper mill expansion project doesn’t require additional land but the company is likely to employ 100 people. Beside this, Trident Group has a textile mill as well as a sulphuric acid plant. The group is a USD 1 billion enterprise with a head account of over 10,000 and provides indirect employment to 20,000 people.
